Tour Participation Requirements
You'll want to bring a change of clothes for this extreme outing. It's good clean fun, but you'll end up a muddy mess.
Don't worry. You'll be wearing a helmet with a full face visor as you splash through rainforest streams in a rugged ATV, taking in views of verdant pastureland on the way to the Arenal River. Jump in and rinse off the mud, then chill with your group and enjoy some fresh tropical fruit.
Of course, this is just Part 2 of an adrenaline-fueled adventure. You'll have spent the morning rappelling down canyons with waterfalls gushing just inches away, and zooming through the air on the Monkey Drop zip line, 80 feet above the rainforest floor. All just a few miles from mile-high Arenal Volcano. Towering above the town of La Fortuna, smoke curling from its 460-foot-wide crater, Arenal was thought dormant until 1968, when a ferocious eruption shot huge boulders a mile away at speeds of nearly 2,000 feet per second. Since then, it's erupted seven times, making it the perfect backdrop for a day you'll definitely remember as a blast.
Arenal Volcano last blew its top on the afternoon of May 7, 1998, when 23 separate eruptions were recorded in just six hours. The successive jolts cracked the crater wall and sent dirt and rocks tumbling down the side – lava flows and chunks of cooled magma can still be seen. Seismologists keep a 24/7 watch on monitoring equipment, and park rangers maintain a strict safety perimeter.
